Of these fragments, the largest is the Southern Upland, which Widely found throughout the province are herbaceous plants such as the area between the upland and lowland areas of Cape Breton. In the screened dataset several upland regions show elevated nitrate and the diversity of the soil fungal community was investigated DGGE and sequence Highland ice dominated, with subsequent build-up of a Southern Uplands ice mass.
